Most Active Industry Lobbying On Sequestration

We all know that sequestration—those automatic spending cuts set to kick in next year—has caused a lobbying frenzy among defense contractors. But it turns out that education is the most active industry in lobbying against sequestration cuts.

That’s according to the Open Secrets Blog: of the 421 groups who hired lobbyists in the first three quarters of 2012 to work sequestration, 91 are education groups, mostly universities.

Defense, on the other hand, has 25 organizations lobbying on sequestration cuts.
